    It shouldn't shock anyone who pays attention to your posts. You've stated it many times. Waiting to see for yourself what it brings and if it's good enough . That's the way to do it.

    I don't fall under either of your tablet people but use mine daily. Last year for the first time in over 15 years, I took a vacation without having to lug a laptop. I was able to do everything on my surface with VPN and remote desktop work wise. At home, I have a desktop, laptop, work laptop and surface. During the day working, I use the work laptop provided for me. After that it's the surface on my time. Using it now. In fact the personal laptop that is in the nook that my wife using is dying a slow death. She sees me using the tablet and asked if she could do what she needs on it. Told her yep. We're going to pick up a surface 2 later today.
    Nice choice by her, really.

    It does boil down to a person's usage. For me, my T100 replaces my old laptop and netbook and as a student, I use it almost exclusively with the dock. I use my Z Ultra as a smaller sized screen for reading and doing work where I don't want to bring my T100 along. My 8X is for music and my 925 is for weekends to take pics instead of bringing my camera around.

    As much as I like Apple and how productive the iPad is in many ways, the fact it is still hitched to iTunes will always make me pick a Windows then an Android tab.

    Folks like Rue and Chregu benefits from waiting based on how fast the chipset tech is evolving. My guess is full Windows tabs with 64 bit for $300 and 10" displays will be standard by mid next year.

    This phone fixing business has gotten a bit out of hand :-) I'm now sitting on 10 mint condition Lumia 822 phones :-) I need to sell a few to work on the HTC 8X project :-) And to clear some money to buy an Android phone as well, I was quite disappointed with the performance of the Concur app on WP during the last trip to Boston. Also I have a lot of travel coming up and have to rely on Concur which is the default tool at work for travel.
    I don't know how you do it. I'm glad I narrowed down what I have, and often used trade ins to try new phones, but even that is really expensive. I hope you move some of those units soon...

    So I sent in the 925 for repair. The repair guy I use was impressed with the 925 - even though he sells WP, he and his wife are too invested in Android and Apple to make the switch. He is using a Nexus 5 now. But the way he looked at my 925, you can see if 8.1 os as good as the hype, he might try it...

    Is there a hype for 8.1? I don't feel it, at least after reading the comments on the "is 8.1 too little too late?"-article on the main page.

    Personally, I just hope it is really good and brings missing features to at least catch up to the other platforms and bring some notable new features. Something we didn't really have since Windows Phone 7... If we get that, together with some good hardware, it might be more than enough for me.

    I'm still afraid there will be a "Microsoft takes over Nokia, the other manufacturers don't care about WP"-gap which sets back Windows Phone development even more.

    Let's hope 8.1 delivers. If you scroll around the intersweb, people are curious about 8.1. I would hate to see it be all fluff and no substance. I don't think I will drop WP as my primary right now, but if Android gives me a compelling reason, I could see myself using the Z Ultra as my daily driver.

    I got money back from my Z1 since the insurance company didn't have a white in stock so I'm waiting a while to see what happening before buying again.
